Tyler Seguin’s going to be seeing Tomas Vokoun in his nightmares.
He certainly wasn’t the only Bruin to have a sure thing stolen by the Capitals goaltender this afternoon in their 4-3 win against the Bruins, but he was victimized by Vokoun on two quality chances today, the best of which was when the Czech netminder went to the splits and denied a perfectly-placed Seguin shot with his left pad.
Follow us past the jump to watch Vokoun’s flashy game-saver.
After freezing the puck with his gloved hand, Vokoun gave it a sassy little flip to return it to the ice, which we can only interpret in one of two ways: Nice try, kid. I’m awesome, or Wow, Caps, you really weren’t going to cover him there? Thanks for NOTHING.
The netminder had a pretty expressive night all the way across the board. After the Caps failed to cover him on a last-minute goal at the end of the second period, Vokoun flopped dramatically onto the ice and lay there for a few moments, clearly considering whether he wanted to live on this planet anymore.

The Caps have gotten used to Vokoun conveying his feelings pretty clearly when the coverage in front of him isn’t what it should be, but if he can usually condense a scene into one pointed look, this was a three-act play.
